Until now the Coolpad Note 3 lite has been my favorite recommendation under Rs 10000. But the mobile did not get regular software updates. Let us see if the Coolpad Note 5 Lite will get regular software and support as promised. The design of this mobile looks strikingly similar to Redmi Note 4. The mobile will compete with Moto G Play and Redmi 3S Prime which are popular mobiles in this segment. Which one would you prefer? Do let us know your thoughts on the comment below.
